drastic measures and your thoughts!

So I have the wax cardboard that covers the bottom of my X17Z that is mostly screwed to the frame of the underneath of the floor frame. What I have discovered is that this creates a cavity for mice. I have attempted to secure all of the areas using screws, foam, chalking, stainless steel wool and anything else to fill the open areas from being accessed. It is a bit funny because it is like playing wack-a-mole and I am losing. I can feel this cavity is full of bedding and nuts. I am thinking about removing all of the wax carboard all together, exposing the frame and painting the underside with a good waterproofing undercoat paint. Insulation value is not important to me as I don't camp in cold weather. Before I go all "nuts" on this is there any unintended consequence I am not thinking about that. Thank you.

Since you don't cold weather camp I can't see any negatives. In the early years rigs didn't have enclosed frames and I never heard of any major issues.

One benefit of removing it. Makes it much easier to fix anything under the trailer.

It makes it easier for the mice.

And it's probably coroplast a corrugated plastic sheet product.
